Dearest Online Family and Friends: I hope all of you are doing very well.  I am always happy to be communicating with you.  I thank you for reading, and taking the time to correspond (sending your comments and feedback;) Thanks very much for sharing your information and knowledge with me.

Dialogue Worth Noting!

With all the talk from many Christian Groups around the world regarding "Judgment Day - The Rapture” steadfastly approaching; one can only stand back, look on in amazement at all the madness taking place around the world and wonder: Wow, is there some truth to their rhetoric…are they indeed right?  You just have to wonder, because the signs taking place around the world are beginning to truly manifest themselves.  [Hum, the much talked about “New World Order” seems to be at our doorsteps!!!!]

Just on Thursday, April 7th an earthquake 7.4 in magnitude struck the Northeast coast of Japan, and Tsunami warnings were issued, but since have been lifted; (citizens were ordered to evacuate…move to higher grounds.)  Of course, there have been injuries; but no reports of death (at least not yet,) and there is NO power in several parts of the region.  Thankfully, there are no reports regarding additional risks from the already damaged Nuclear Reactors.

Not surprisingly, the fighting and bloodshed in Libya continues; with death and destruction mounting.  Libyan Leader Muammar Qaddafi is doing everything in his power to keep control of his country, despite the help from NATO the Rebels fighting against him are receiving (arms being supplied, air support and ground support).  

By the way, THANKS to so many of you for commenting and sending me detailed information regarding the nonsensical fight in Libya.  You have certainly “opened my eyes” and have left me in awe.  I  must be careful about my comments, so I reserve it for a later time.  Most importantly, I want to thank Mr. Victor for all the information he graciously sent me…Thank you very much sir!

You must be aware also of the major unrest taking place in yet another African country - the Ivory Coast.  From all my readings the people are stating the fight is for their freedom.  Many are strongly supporting their leader Laurant Gbadgo who is being forced out of power by French forces with the help of the UN. Mr. Gbagbo refuses to surrender and leave his post and country.  Recently his Presidential compound has been under siege, and it has been this way for the past 3 days.  Due to the vicious attacks, fighting, looting and burning of homes; thousands of citizens are displaced, hungry and are fleeing to Liberia.  With all that is taking place in this country there is a fear, and a warning has been issued regarding a possible cholera epidemic [breakout.] 

The constant fight/conflict in the Middle East is again escalating between the Israelis and Palestinians. 

Now, back on the home front ~~~ The United States of America, the drama continues regarding The Government Shut down; which personally I think is a “bunch of crap," quite appalling and simply doesn't make any sense!  The one thing that bothers me about this “Shut Down” is: [if it is to take place] these congressmen/women (the same law makers we voted for, and placed in office to represent us) WILL GET PAID!  YUP, THEY ARE EXEMPTED!!!  WHILE A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF THE 800,000 GOVERNMENT WORKERS WILL NOT!!!!!

Crazy huh?  They care of nothing else (not even us,) but only of getting their way and refuses to come to terms; or to some sort of an agreement on the budget.  It’s more important to them to keep fighting and fighting.  Hum, but then again…WHY NOT KEEP FIGHTING AND PROCEED WITH THE SHUT DOWN?  THEY WILL NOT BE AFFECTED, THEY WILL GET THEIR SALARY.  [Again, quite a bit of Government employees (approx. 800,000) WILL NOT though (with the exception of some important agencies, workers, etc.)]

This is freaking insane, and a disrespect to the citizens of the United States.  Loss of pay for thousands, and loss of revenue for business, those who provide services, etc.; due to 2 parties fighting to get their way.


LOL...Heck, maybe soon since it is being reported that this "Judgment Day" is around the corner!!!


A Special Meeting-Visit

Despite all the unrest around the nation, and all the e-mails I received regarding such.  We had a fantastic weekend and week.  One filled with meetings and events; plus an exciting and entertaining concert with  Reggae Star Collie Buddz, The New Kingston Band and Los Rakas.  The New Kingston Band's performance, and growth as musicians described in two words: "SUPER AWESOME"!!!! Collie Buddz was very good too, as well as Los Rakas!

The most important of all the happenings, was a Town Hall meeting with the Prime Minister of my country Trinidad & Tobago, who was visiting Washington DC to speak at several forums (delivering Keynote addresses), attend conferences and ceremonies/events, etc. 

MeetingWithNationals-TTPM-2011-2.JPG (71385 bytes)I, and fellow Nationals appreciated our Prime Minister The Honorable Kamla Persad-Bissessar for taking the time out of her busy schedule to meet and address us for quite a few hours this week.  In attendance was Dr.  Neil Parsan, Ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago to the United States (pictured on the left standing behind the PM); Honorable Rodney Charles, Ambassador of Trinidad and Tobago to the United Nations; and a few members/Ministers of Mrs. Persad-Bissessar’s cabinet (Brigadier John Sandy, Minister of National Security; Honorable Mary King, Ministry of Planning, Economic and Social Restructuring and Gender Affairs; and Dr. Surujrattan Rambachan, Minister of Foreign Affairs.)  The visiting members of her cabinet spoke about their respective Ministry, responsibilities, and most importantly their goals. 

Kamla-TTPM-WASDC-1.JPG (20892 bytes)Honorable Mrs. Persad-Bissessar expressed her joy to be able to address us; and proceeded to discuss her, and her cabinet’s intentions regarding thedevelopment and transformation of the economy to meet the needs of the current and future generations of Trinidad and Tobago.”  She discussed economic and social development of the Citizens of T and T, poverty eradication and social justice, universal primary and early childhood education (citizens currently enjoy universal secondary education); anti-gang legislation; a complete reform of the criminal justice system;  as well as the reform of the health care system (she announced her intentions regarding the building of 5 hospitals in Trinidad and Tobago, plus the renovation/refurbishing of many others;) job creations; tourism; energy (oil and natural gas); redevelopment of roads - infrastructure; and housing.  She particularly placed special emphasis on EDUCATION, which she believes is the key to successful future generations of Trinidad and Tobago.

It was a very good meeting, and for me I was able to get a “first hand" glimpse of a remarkable woman.  I felt her passion and love for her country.  I was also afforded the opportunity to see her vision for her country (something I was unable to see before); and I clearly saw her strong desire [her need and want] to deliver real change to the people of her beloved Trinidad and Tobago.  It was a very special evening and I’m hopeful it was for many that were in attendance.

I am interested to know the following, but would welcome all responses.

1. Did the story line appeal to your emotions?

2. Were you able to identify with any of the characters mentioned?

3. Which was your favorite character, and why?

I thank you for your feedback, and I offer a free copy of “Gifts From The Heart” to the person or persons who has the most interesting feedback. Of course I would attempt to be as objective as possible in my analysis, of course involving the added opinions of a few of my better learned friends.
